Karen Torry Greene, MSW, LCSW, DBTC, KAP heads up VIP Mental Health and Life Coaching, PLLC. She is a therapist with a diversified and experiential personal background that helps her easily relate to numerous people and their issues. She is known for a collaborative, yet direct style that incorporates an educational component into her therapy, and she is particularly recognized for her nonjudgmental approach. She received her Masters in Social Work from Arizona State University, where she became familiar with Brief and other forms of therapy. She then participated in an intensive two-year residency in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), where she was formally trained in CBT and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. While learning DBT, she developed a penchant and love for working with personality disordered persons, persons in crisis, and persons who have multiple and complex diagnoses. She has gained experience and appreciation for working with many unique individuals, and works hard to build trust in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.
She is comfortable discussing “taboo” topics such as anger, death, sexual issues, self-harming, Impulsive/Compulsive/Extreme/Avoidant Behaviors, and is able to help people quickly feel comfortable with these disclosures. She is currently actively and significantly involved in client advocating and affecting change in the public mental health system, as well as in the alt-sex communities; and she is building a working understanding of Neuroscience to enhance clinical results, as well as teaching Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to University Students.
DBT Skills Classes are offered both morning and evening. She is also available for DBT presentations and consultation to the professional community.
